Could Leonard Nimoy‘s role as the mysterious William Bell be coming to an end?
“I’ve done three appearances for them,” said Nimoy. “I don’t know if I will do a fourth.”
Nimoy won’t know the answer to that until he finds out what the plans are for Bell. “They’ve asked me to do more, but we have to talk about where the character is going.”
“So far my character, William Bell, and my appearances have been used to lay in information about this alternate universe and the experience of being in this other world,” explained Nimoy. “And that’s OK, but I don’t know yet what plans they have for really developing a dramatic story for the character. I’m waiting for a conversation about that.”
Nimoy will have some of that conversation with J.J. Abrams, but more with Jeff Pinkner, Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman. “I think they’re talking amongst themselves now so they can present some kind of plan, a story arc of some kind.”
